Where Does the Title Come From?

“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all. ” — John Lennon

Someone asked me where the title of this blog came from, so I thought I’d explain. It is a lyric from a Beatles song Tomorrow Never Knows.  The lyrics have a lot of meaning to me. (And no, a psychedelic experience is not necessary to appreciate them, although it can’t hurt.  But that is a topic for another day.)  It’s easy to appreciate on a technical level as well; there is a lot of innovation in the way the song was recorded.

The song is the final track on the brilliant album Revolver, and there is another amazing version of it on Anthology 2. If you haven’t heard these works of art, now’s the time!

    Yes Mary, I completely agree with you about Tomorrow Never Knows, and the brilliance of Revolver, which is one of my favorite albums of all time.

    You know that your blog title is a lyric line from ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, which was JL’s tribute to LSD. This chemical, like DMT and some others, can cure or worsen mental illness. Depends on your attitude: it is knowing, it is believing, it is playing the game ‘existence’ to the end.
